gnome-mime-data still required for GNOME VFS?

Hey everyone, this is my first post to this list.

I have a (hopefully quick) question about GNOME VFS and MIME-types.  I
know that in GNOME 2.8, the old GNOME MIME system was scrapped in favour
of the standard.  Why is it, then, that GNOME VFS, as of
2.10.1, still requires gnome-mime-data as a dependency?

Can GNOME VFS not talk to the new system yet?  Does it actually use the
data in @DATADIR@/application-registry and @DATADIR@/mime-types?

I'm a little confused.  If someone could shed some light on this, that
would be great.  Thanks.
